Second Youth Club delivered by Victoria and Laura

In our second workshop, we moved on from Identity to Stereotypes. We were lucky to work with the same group as the first workshop. The session started with a quick energizer where we got the students to act out particular ideas (love, peace, trees, vacation etc.). This was a good way to wake up, as our lesson was one of the first of the day. We then moved onto a fun CSI (crime scene investigation) activity to figure out who…

Message from our volunteer Dieter Eggen

Dear all, I have been spending the last nine months in Moldova. My main reason of being here is to volunteer for a refugee centre in Moldova’s capital Chisinau.

Besides talking, listening to music and playing Secret Santa we also had an amazing international potluck: Everyone brought some food (mostly selfmade Christmas candies from their homecountries but also hearty dishes) and shared it with each other. Of course, Moldovan placinte and Christmas sweets didn’t miss. Thanks to everyone for making such a great evening possible.
